Consulting Manager (Performance Solutions)
Headquartered in metropolitan Chicago, Hilco Global is the leading international financial services company having completed billions of dollars of transactions around the world. Through 550+ professionals operating on five continents, Hilco helps companies and their professional advisors understand the value of assets and then maximize that value through asset monetization solutions and enhance value through advisory and consulting solutions.

Hilco Performance Solutions, a division of Hilco Valuation Services LLC, was born in October 2019 to advise clients, both internal and external on the necessary operational improvements to sustain and advance a client’s business.
This division will build a cross functional team in the areas of Supply Chain, Sales and Operations to advise clients on better business processes to enable sustainable revenue growth and cost reduction.
This opportunity differentiates itself from other mid market management consulting companies in two different ways: (1) the ability to leverage Hilco’s strong existing asset expertise to support Hilco’s Performance Solutions clients and (2) the ability to provide advisory and management talent to existing Hilco Businesses and the businesses Hilco may acquire and operate allowing for an ownership stake in the value transformation process.
